    went out fishin today at a little pond. wasnt gettin any bites so i decided to do a little turtle fishin. there were these two large turtles just swimmin around the dock so i tried to hook it. got the back of its shell. i fought it for at least 10 minutes and finally got it to shore which was a good distance from where i caught it on the dock. after gettin it so shore, i godda say it weighed at least 35 lbs. hopin to go back there soon to catch another one and maybe take it home for dinner.:tounge_out:

    I catch them all the time when I use a bobber. As soon as they see that orange float they swim to it and dive down and get my bait.
